Indoor/outdoor camera provides full scene fidelity and sharp images in all directions
March 6, 2017
The AXIS Q6128-E from Axis Communications, is an addition to the AXIS Q61 Series of pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) dome network cameras. With video quality in 4K Ultra HD resolution and high-speed pan/tilt and zoom functions, it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations, in low light and challenging environmental conditions. This makes the PTZ dome camera useful in a range of applications such as shopping malls, parking lots, and sports stadiums, as well as for city and perimeter surveillance.
The AXIS Q6128-E PTZ dome camera features Sharpdome technology to enable coverage of large areas—above and below the horizon—with great detail when zooming in. Sharpdome technology provides full scene fidelity and image quality in all directions. It offers mechanics that make the entire dome rotate, in contrast to a conventional dome where the camera rotates inside the dome. The mechanics and the placement of the camera module together with the design of the outdoor dome enable the same optimal image sharpness and full scene fidelity in all pan and tilt positions. This provides clear identification of objects as much as 20° above the camera horizon making these cameras suitable for uneven terrain.
The Sharpdome technology includes Axis’ Speed Dry function, which provides sharp images even in rainy conditions. It can also simplify dome cleaning, allowing for more efficient methods such as high pressure cleaning. With the Speed Dry function activated, the dome vibrates at high speed. It breaks the surface tension of the water and removes the drips.
AXIS Q6128-E will function reliably in temperatures ranging from -58°F to 122°F and features automatic defog. Like all cameras in the AXIS Q61 Series, AXIS Q6128-E also supports Electronic Image Stabilization for smooth video even in scenes with lots of motion.
The AXIS Q6128-E has built-in video analytics functionality that includes motion detection and Advanced Gatekeeper, allowing the camera to detect an object in a specified area and zoom in on it. With its open Application Programming Interface, the PTZ dome camera also has substantial capacity for third-party intelligent video applications through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program.
The AXIS Q6128-E features 4K (8 MP) video at a frame rate of 30 fps, 12x optical zoom with autofocus, quick and precise pan of more than 700° per second to allow tracking of fast moving objects, and has a distortion-free, transparent dome cover. The PTZ dome camera is IK09 rated impact resistant; provides shock detection with automated alarm to prevent tampering and vandalism; offers built-in protection against dust, strong water jets, rain, snow, and sunlight; and delivers Arctic Temperature Control for startup and operation in temperatures down to -40°F.
